At the FDR Memorial in Washington, D.C., engraved in marble stone between a statue of men standing in a bread line and the statue of an elderly woman seated in a chair are these words of President Roosevelt: "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." The quote is from his second inaugural address of Jan. 20, 1937.

Please remember these words as you go to cast your vote in the recall election in Wisconsin on Tuesday and again in the national presidential election in November.
